The Kitchen Buffet Dressed for the Autumn

I love redecorating with items I already have in the house. It feels like I have a brand new whatever whenever I find a new spot for any of my old house decor items. Last spring I decided to take the freebie mirror my sister gave me which was in the upstairs hall, and hang it above the buffet in the kitchen. While I do love the look I have to be very diligent about keeping the kitchen island clear, otherwise the mirror will reflect whatever is on the counter, and if it's a mess it feels like I have twice as much of a mess. 

So today when I took the fall wreath off of the front door to make way for the Halloween wreath, I got the idea of hanging it on the mirror in the kitchen...and I have to tell you that I love it! The wreath partially hides the image of the counter without totally losing all of its beautiful reflective quality, and gives me a great spot to display seasonal wreaths!

This fabulous mercury glass and jute lamp I picked up at Home Goods last fall for about $35. A steal right?

And those beautifully graceful thrift shop swans, which were part of my fall mantel display, made their way into the kitchen after I decorated the mantel for Halloween.

I added a little bling in the way of a single silver candle holder and by placing a hurricane glass around it.

I adore my country white plates from both Phaltzgraff and the Christmas Tree Shop.

A couple of faux pumpkins in two different textures were added to the vignette and voila...it was done! I kept if very simple this year but did incorporate some pops of orange.

Hope you are enjoying a relaxing weekend and wishing you an autumn bountiful with God's blessings.

Update: Today I was moving more of my fall items around and decided to add the little rustic looking "FALL" banner I made to the vignette...what do you think?

  1. I love the buffet in your kitchen. It looks gorgeous and I love the idea of a mirror in the kitchen-even if it does mean you need keep things neater!

  2. The hurricane over the silver candle holder is striking. I too hung a wreath on my dining room mirror and I smile each time I pass by it. Your kitchen buffet is PERFECT!

  3. Your kitchen buffet is beautiful. I like the hurricane over the silver candle holder. Going to search for a small holder like yours to fit my hurricane. I hung a fall hydrangea wreath from a mirror in our dining room. A smile comes across my face each time I pass by.
